Today an orca whale scientist from Killer Whale Tales was at school to work with 5th-graders from our school and Louisa Boren STEM K-8. They got to participate in a mock version of a real study that is happening this year to identify the critical habitat of orca whales by figuring out where the whales are spending most of their time. Students learned about the scientific method and a ton about our neighbors J, K, and L-Pod.
